Domain-wide Link Detox Risk (Domain DTOXRISK™)

When you run a Link Detox® report on a specific domain, you will instantly notice the new Domain-wide Link Detox Risk (Domain DTOXRISK™) shown. The report can display any of these below ratings depending on your average Domain DTOXRISK™. It is important to know what it is, so you can get the insights you need to make specific changes and to monitor improvements of your Domain DTOXRISK™ over time.

Link Detox Risk Score (DTOXRISK™)

The DTOXRISK™ displays a pie chart on the left. You can visually see what risk level and rating has the highest risk out of all your backlinks. On the right, you will be able to see an itemized breakdown of all the different risk levels with the number of links and percentages. This tab also gives you the ability to export as a CSV or XLS.

Get rid of your “unnatural links”

Link Detox is a stand-alone tool that classifies a domain’s backlinks into 3 categories (high, medium, or low link audit priority) and supports you in cleaning up your link profile. The interface of Link Detox is so easy to handle that you can discover all the risky links to your site with a single click.

We analyze your link profile based on a variety of SEO metrics and known problematic contexts. We then provide recommendations for your links.

Multiple Risk Detection for Every Link

The Link Detox tool gives you the ability to see what risk rules have been detected for each link. Simply hover your mouse over the DTOXRISK™ level like in the screenshot below.

This great feature helps you understand why a specific link has been marked at a specific DTOXRISK™ level. You will also notice in the screenshot below that the rule column will always display the higher DTOXRISK™ rating as a default. To better understand what each rule means, you can find a full explanation here

Importing your own backlinks in Link Detox

Run Mode: Classic

Use this mode when you want to take advantage of LinkResearchTools’ large data sources, and want to generate a qualitative analysis of your backlink profile.

Run mode: What-if

Use this mode to check links that you could get, and want to verify that they are not risky in the context of your domain. Keep in mind, a link can be a good addition to one site, but hurt another site. This is because network patterns and other factors could make the link a high link audit priority for your site.

This mode is ideal for link builders who want to verify that new links will be okay to build.

Run mode: Review

This mode allows you to quickly inspect your uploaded links as high, medium, or low link audit priority.

It does not consider your existing link profile. It’s a somewhat quick review mode for the most common and dominant problems we can find. For example, if a domain has a High DTOXRISK™ because it contains a Malware/Virus on it, it will have a High DTOXRISK™ regardless of your existing links.

This is a quick expert mode. We recommend link builders to always use the “What-If” mode to make sure the links they create have a low link audit priority.

Google’s Disavow Links Integration

Link Detox Google Disavow links integration
Are you already tired of contacting thousands of webmasters? After the latest release of Google’s Disavow Links Tool, you are finally able to disavow a certain set of unwanted links, and get rid of your bad links.

We still recommend using our integrated contact function to get those links completely removed from the web because you don’t want other search engines to see those spammy links to your site.

Keep in mind that we use very common spam link rules to identify bad links. Due to this automated process, there can still be wrong results in certain edge cases. Make sure you review all links you want Google to ignore so they won’t hurt your site’s rankings.
